Through the Eyes of a Child

Children have incredible talent.  This image was taken by my daughter Lewanna 13 at the time, now 14 of her younger sister Angèle with a point and shoot Pentax Optio camera. I know this may sound biased, but in my opinion, the ambiance, cropping, feel and quality is as close to perfect as one might get…

Bravo Lewanna!

“Sometimes children with their fresh eyes looking at the world may be able to see that which an adults eyes pass over. There are many sayings to express this sentiment. One is, ‘out of the mouths of babes…’, another coined by a television show is, “kids say the darndest things”. We recognize that as adults we have become jaded. We may miss hilarious ironies about the world that our children have to point out to us. If I had to take a guess, I would say that children are in the world for just this purpose.”

    At 3 1/2, my eldest son borrowed my DSLR and snapped away, one picture was of his shoes! The framing was great, the lighting great. I entered it into a national competition, he got runner up!
    Now he has his own camera (Pentax Optio from 4 years old, he’s now 5 1/2); his technique is not great, he doesn’t care about getting it right, but he enjoys himself and his pictures are very refreshing and fun to view – the best way for me to see how he sees his world and what is important to him. It is amazing the number of bottom shots he has – then again, that’s his eye-level!!

  • She did it “in camera” and just added a bit more saturation.

  • Wow, what a great shot. I imagine it was post-processed a bit? Or did she do the processing in-camera?
